I'm looking for information on semi-auto handguns in acceptable defense calibers (.380 acp and larger) that are relatively easy to rack the slide. I'm going to take my wife shopping for a handgun (or should I say "ask her if she would like to accompany me"). The problem is, she hates shopping for anything. Unlike many women, she wants to go into the store, take care of business and get out as quickly as possible. So I'd like to make a list of good candidates and call ahead to make sure the store has a number of good candidates on hand for her to try. She can rack the slide on her Hi-Standard .22lr easily (of course) and was able to rack the slide on an instructor's Glock 9mm (not sure which one). She can't rack the slide on my XD45 or my father's Walther PPK/S. P.S. Thanks to all who posted in my related thread. Good advice to let her pick her own gun, hence this thread.
